Volkswagen Golf Hatchback (13-20)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Not sure i care about that its "a car" it has a function and does it very well.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Family love it my kids want to use it all the time so i keep the keys to myself.

Would you buy this car again and why?
It does all i need and does it well without fuss.I am however dissapointed in the fuel consumption as my previous 15 year old Fiesta gave 44 MPG without all the advanced expensive technology and this car is only giving circa 45 so far but i will update in a few months.

What are you likely to buy next?
Same again or the Audi A3.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Engine is very (super) responsive around the 1800 rpm range but a little lacking in torque in low gears at low RPM when slow moving about town. It eates the motorway up quietly for occupants and the ADC is very intelligent at maintaining the gap when cruising.

What's it like to park?
Still getting used to parking as the car is much bigger than my previous aged Fiesta, actually 12 inches wider and new so i am a bit sensitive about bumping anything. Steering is very light and responsve so its easy to manouvre though.

Living with it

The ADC.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
ADC cruise control which is so practical when motorway driving.
